Workshop: Writing scholarly articles
dated: 11 Feb 2015
10th Feb: Travelling from Sintok as early as 7.15 in the morning – heading to Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP) — is indeed tiring.
But, upon arrival, I enjoyed the hospitality of Associate Professor Dr Wan Fatimah and the gang (Dr Afza, Iman, Dr Sobri, Shima..). We had our FRGS kick-off meeting in the afternoon and our dinner just after Maghrib prayer. Nice to get to know Dr Afza’s daughter, Dr Wan’s daugter, Dr Sobri’s wife, Dr Wan’s Hubby…it was a looooong dinner table that fit everybody^^^
Early morning of 11th Feb – another task is waiting: a workshop on writing scholarly articles. Penat kelmarin belum hilang…sigh! The event was organised by UTP for their postgrads students.
Topics that I managed to cover (cathing up with time) till 4.45pm are the following:
- Reading and writing
- Writing structure
- Writing process
- The structure of a research paper
- The paper:
- Outline of content
- Content à methods
- Content for different types of paper
- Conference vs journal papers
- Publishing – high impact journals
These are the participants – with me.
Great team, the secretariat. Thanks to Mumtaz Ali, and the gang. I still remember Fang, Nehel, Zainab, …
I enjoyed my stay at UTP (Rumah Tamu UTP), and also benefit a lot from the FRGS meeting and the the workshop. I not only handle the workshop, but I have learned a lot form my colleagues and participants.
Here is the material I shared with the audience:
